Best Answer

A freedom ride is when a group of people go on a bus or some other transport, to protest about something. Such as in 1965, when Charles Perkins led 30 university students on the first 'Freedom Ride,' designed to protest and bring attention to the racial discriminations of Aborigines, that was rife in rural communities.
